Interesting to hear his point of view vs. his media image
This book was very helpful to me in understanding the backdrop to the Ford/Kavanaugh controversy. Mark Judge seems like a typical teenager who happened to become an alcoholic. I think it's very important to remember that these people were drunk teenagers at the time in question. It's also important to note that we don't teach our children moderation when they're young and they tend to go hog wild once they get free of us. It isn't a good situation. Every child should be taught about moderation and every teenager should be taught about consent. That's the only way I can see to cut down on these incidents.
